Wemimo Mathew has resigned her appointment as the Head Coach of Sunshine Queens Women Football Club of Akure following her appointment as the Head Coach of Edo Queens of Benin.
Mathew dropped her letter of resignation on Monday with the Ondo State Football Agency, managers of Sunshine Queens and Sunshine Stars.
Mathew had led Sunshine Queens to a sixth place finish in the abruptly-ended 2020/2021 NWFL Premiership season.
She then led them to a fourth place finish at the Super 6 competition, with just four points behind champions Rivers Angels.
Recalled that Edo Queens’ former coach, Rollanson Odeh, was asked to step aside mid-season by the club management.
This had led to the drafting in of the coach of the Insurance Feeders, Stanley Osaze, as interim manager.
Osaze had taken Edo Queens to the Super 6, where they placed last on the log.
Mathew, while informing ODSFA officials and players of her new appointment on in Akure, expressed her appreciation to Sunshine Queens’ management officials for their support.
She said: “I want to use this opportunity to say a very big ‘thank you’ to everyone.
“It has been my pleasure working with you all.
“I will like to let you know that I need to move on, and I will miss you all a lot.
“Thanks once again for your support.
